Re: Poll: Which of the following attacks is the most difficult for you to handle during aikido training?

Yokomenuchi is often difficult to anticipate because of the plethora of striking angles and striking spots; it travels across two planes (horizontal and vertical), so it makes for complicated intercepting as well. I find many students spend time trying to "catch" the strike and they simply do not have the motor skills to do that against a good attack...
